Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O ( House of Dancing Water )

Water sprung up from all sides as the show went on.

The pavilion was raised suddenly from under the performing platform.dscf0674

Dancers gathered round and the main actor and actress went into the pavilion.

This was part of the show House of Dancing Water in Macau.

Water is of course the main theme.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance

The theme for this week’s DP photo challenge is Dance.

Taking motion photography is not one of my favorites; I usually take still photos of landscape or architecture only.DSCF0722

This photo is an exception; it was taken in Macau, in the House of Dancing Water performance.

The multi-colored water jets were coming up and the dancers were dancing as they were in the rain.

I have set my shutter speed slow so that the photo gives a sense of motion for the jets and the dancers.

Weekly Photo Challenges: Motion + Blur + Afloat

< A series of 5 Photos >

The recent and current themes of the Daily Press Weekly Photo Challenges are:

Motion, Blur and Afloat I am trying to combine these into just one series of pictures.DSCF0683

These pictures were all taken a fortnight ago  in the show The House of the Dancing Water in Macau.DSCF0684

Some of you may have seen my past posts showing water jets coming up, a pavilion coming up from the water and dancers dancing around the pavilion, all in splendid colors.DSCF0685

This series of photos are less colorful; the main color theme is blue.DSCF0686

They all show the pavilion gradually lowered into the water and finally disappear from the surface.DSCF0687

Water come gushing up, acrobats diving down into the water.

The blur in the images suggests motion.

The acrobats/ dancers are afloat either in the air, dancing up and down or finally plunge into water.

What a sight!
